Wagner at Coney Island


  1. What a privilege to hear Anton Seidl’s lovely–and beautifully performed–composition “Good Night” that you discovered. The Wagner Society of New York has long had a special interest in Maestro Seidl and this adds another string to his bow. Our Anton Seidl Award is a prestigious occasional award, presented to someone who has made major contributions to Wagner performance in the U.S. It has been presented (listed chronogically) to Maestro James Levine, Birgit Nilsson, Jon Vickers, James Morris, Speight Jenkins, Otto Schenk, Gunther Schneider-Siemssen, Plácido Domingo, and the entire Metropolitan Opera Orchestra in 2013. We think Maestro Seidl would approve.
